Wyatt Completes Acquisition of the Assets of Proterion Corporation
News Dec 01, 2004
Wyatt Technology has completed the acquisition of the assets of Proterion Corporation (formerly Protein Solutions). Proterion was a supplier of computer-controlled life sciences instrumentation for particle sizing and biomolecular characterization of protein molecules for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets. Headquartered in Piscataway, New Jersey, Proterion has over 1000 systems installed worldwide.
The company's manufacturing facility, based in High Wycombe, United Kingdom, as well as assets from the New Jersey offices, will be transferred to Wyatt Technology's headquarters in Santa Barbara. Several staff from the UK and New Jersey offices are also expected to join Wyatt Technology shortly.
"The Proterion acquisition brings us world-class products and deep industry expertise," comments Geof Wyatt, President of Wyatt Technology. "The addition of Proterion's DynaPro™ (Protein Solutions™) product lines broadens and strengthens the array of solutions that Wyatt is able to offer its customers. In key applications such as protein crystallography, we should be the 'best of breed'.
As laboratories increasingly rely on light scattering for absolute characterization, Wyatt is strategically positioned to offer a broad portfolio of solutions. We have the in-house expertise and resources required to be successful in this market."
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
